Two main pages - one for hubs only and the other for forums and Q&A

    I like the new Topic page design - but is it possible to have that for hubs only. Then have the feed page for forums, Q&A, and Status. I think that would be a very good way to showcase hubs more prominently and keep all forum threads on one place, easier to find.

    EDIT: if the topic page had the section with our profile pic, profile, account and comment section, (and no forums) then it would be perfect IMHO.

      I agree that it would be nice to have one for just hubs.  I also miss seeing people's profile photo.  I realized today that I don't know people by their hubber name.

        I know, I don't recognize all the huibber names I see. I like to see photos.

        My reason for asking a separate page for just forums is because I do not visit the forums that much and get so tired of seeing the same things over and over or seeing one person starting several forum threads a day on petty little things for several days in a row - that gets rather annoying to me. Funny me saying that since I started this thread, but I rarely start a thread and felt this topic page is something that should be addressed.

    I don't like the new main page. The main thing I ever looked at was my number of new comments and now I have to click over to get to that!

      Well, if the main page showed our pic, profile, new comments, etc., like the current feed page does, that would  be the best.

        Agreed. Give me everything in one place. I'm extremely lazy big_smile

    We've been trying to figure out the best way to show forums and QnA on the site.  We've also been tweaking the hubs we display.  It will take us a bit to get it as right as we can.

      Hey, Paul. Thanks for commenting and letting us know you are working on it.

      I worked on a site for several years where the forums were in their own section, run by UBB threads and it was great. All the articles could be accessed in a separate section where 3 or 4 of the newest hubs were featured and all the topics listed below to make it easier to find articles in topics one was interested in.

      I appreciate your feedback and happy to hear you are working on this.

      Paul, is it possible to have the feed page for hubs only? So far the commenters here want to see a page with just hubs and their own box for easy access - example follows :

          Comments
          Your Hubs
          Your Profile


      You already have the topic page and the feed page. It seems like an easy fix to me - but, then I am not a computer tech.  Hope it all works out well for all of us.

    I agree with you.  I do miss the old display and prefer to see hubs in one place. I liked seeing the number of comments I receive.  Can we do something about that?

      Thanks, Audrey.
      I sure hope HP can fix that for us. Having just hubs on one page with our profile pic and access would be great. I am not anti-forum, but I sure get frustrated when having to scroll down past all the forum threads to find hubs I would like to read. Especially when there are so many threads.

      I am sure frequent forum members would appreciate a separate page to find their posts quicker. We might even stretch this idea one more step and have a separate page for Q&A section. We all have so much to do to remain active here that the easier it is for us, the more we can get done.
